What do you know about the real estate industry?
I’ve learned a lot about the real estate industry — mostly the commercial side of the industry — through my business consulting work with startup entrepreneurs.
Have you ever sold real estate? How did you make it happen?
No, but I have been involved in more than a few commercial sales over the years.
How much experience do you have in buying or selling real estate?
I’ve bought residential and commercial real estate for my own purposes, but that is the extent of my experience in terms of direct involvement in the purchase or sale of a real estate property.
Have you ever made a sell or a purchase you have regretted?
Perhaps I’m fortunate in this regard, but I have no regrets as far as real estate goes.
What advice would you give inexperienced who are wanting to buy or sell?
There is always a risk that the excitement of buying or selling real estate will limit the amount of research and analysis done prior to reaching an agreement. Inexperienced buyers or sellers should take care to ensure that their emotions don’t have an undue influence on the decision-making process.
What have you found out to be the best way to market property?
Digital marketing strategies that take advantage of the latest technologies — virtual property tours, for example — are easily among the most effective ways to market a property.
What tools do you believe are essential for success in the real estate industry?
Along with a deep understanding of the industry itself, I’d add patience and a sense of timing.
What has real estate taught you about life?
In real estate and in life, it is often a sense of timing that makes all the difference.
How can you use what you have learned in real estate to succeed in other areas?
I think every entrepreneur has made an impulsive or overly emotional decision that they later come to regret, but the real estate industry really requires that you rely on thoughtful research and analysis rather than pure gut instinct.
Do you have a mentor who taught you what you know?
I don’t have a mentor per se, but I am constantly asking questions about things I’d like to learn more about, including the real estate industry,
Do you have a feedback system? How does it work?
One of the core goals of my consulting business is establishing long-lasting and mutually beneficial client relationship built on honesty and trust. This makes it incredibly easy to secure honest feedback from our clients at a moment’s notice.
